Refresh and Renew as a Family

The warm and inviting sun shining down on our heads, the smell of chlorine, the sound of children laughing, it can only mean one thing – summer is here! Family camps are here too, at our conference center.             We love our visiting families, and we hope you love your …


In His Image

So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.  -Genesis 1:27 I’ve always struggled to be feminine. Anyone who knows me knows I’m not a girly girl, even now.  You see, it had a lot to do with my childhood, particularly because …


Memorial Day

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. We all enjoy our freedoms in this great country of America, so today we honor those who paid the ultimate price to ensure that freedom never dies. To all the families and friends of those who paid that price, …

Prayer Journal

It’s been about three years since I started a prayer journal.  Initially, I thought it might be hard to adjust to writing down my prayers but it wasn’t.  It happened so naturally, I began to prefer using the prayer journal to simply praying inside my head for several reasons.

God is Able
